polite form in Dutch » answer
by nigilmaadhust (UN), Last modified: 2021-11-04, 16:27  like dislike  Spam?  

Could you please tell, how the following sentence would be said in Dutch?

"Please confirm."

In German we would usually say the polite form with the pronoun "Sie" ... "Bitte bestaetigen Sie."

But in Dutch, how can the word "please" be used and is the polite form maintained?

"Alstublieft bevestig u." ? Is the statement correct in Dutch? Could you please help? Many thanks in advance.

The lyrics for "De kleine prinse" by Bobby Prins » answer

The lyrics given on the Internet seem too messed up :
"Er is een prins waar jij iedere nacht van droomt
Jij wacht op hem in het donker hoor jij dan z’n stem
Jij weet nog niet dat ook ik altijd droom van jou
En graag met heel m’n hart
jouw droomprins wezen zou
Dromen doe ik alleen van jou,
jij weet niet hoe ik van je hou
In m’n droom ben jij altijd dicht bij mij
Bij het schemeren van de morgen
gaat m’n mooie droom weer stuk
Als je hartje gaat ontwaken
komt voor jou en mij ’t geluk

Heus liefste meid dromen zijn toch maar valse schijn
Ik ben de man die graag jou kleine prins wil zijn
Dromen doe ik alleen van jou,
jij weet niet hoe ik van je hou
In m’n droom ben jij altijd dicht bij mij
Bij het schemeren van de morgen
gaat m’n mooie droom weer stuk
Als je hartje gaat ontwaken
komt voor jou en mij ’t geluk
Dromen doe ik alleen van jou,
jij weet niet hoe ik van je hou
In m’n droom ben jij altijd dicht bij mij"
Thanks/dankuel !

Hi la petite princesse,

These songlyrics do not seem messed up to me, so I think they are given correctly, They may not be the highest form of poetry, but they do make sense...

honden en handen » answer
by Dmwxhw (US), 2018-04-12, 05:04  like dislike  Spam?  
I am translating a 1933 ethnoographic article. The author describes beliefs about the soul's journey after death, including this:
Op dien tocht overkomen hem eenige wederwaardigheden: hij ontmoet er een bok, die hem stooten wil, vechtende varkens, honden en handen, die hem alle den doorgang betwisten. Maar al deze dieren stelt de doode tevreden door hun iets uit zijn mand te geven; dan laten ze den weg vrij.
I can understand everything except the part about "hands". What does it refer to in this context? Certainly not literal "hands"?
For what it may be worth I have encountered the same phrase "honden en handen" on the internet, but again these examples don't bring me any closer to an understanding. Apologies for the length of the following examples but I want to include sufficient context.

honden en handen  #889529
by pieterk (NL), 2018-04-12, 17:22  like dislike  Spam?  
Hi Dmwxhw,
The phrase is a bit of a riddle indeed, and I do not know what it might refer to, either. I found the exact passage on the website of "Tijdschrift Voor Indische Taal Land En Volkenkunde 1933", and it struck me that in some of the other texts, there are quite a few typos, words misred or badly transcribed from the original (sometimes, the "u" is written as an "n", e.g.).
I can not say if your fragment is wrongly transcribed or not. But the other texts you found on the internet with "honden en handen" in them, have a different context and are not related, as far as I can see.
In all encyclopedias that I consulted, the word "hand" refers to either the body part or a figure of speech that has to do with the body part. So no meaning at all referring to an animal.
I am sorry that I cannot help you any further...
Best wishes,

Hello, we are going on a cycling trip to Holland soon and my husband sometimes has an allergic reaction when cycling. Strange but that's how it is. Could someone please check my efforts at using Google translate and see if this message makes sense - he will have a card with the information on when he is out alone .I will add his personal info and phone number later. Thank you.

Ik heb last van door inspanning geïnduceerde anafylaxie.

In de fiets zadeltas zitten een epipeen, antihistaminica en steroïden.

Ik heb dringende medische hulp nodig van een arts of paramedicus.

which should translate to something like:

I suffer from exercise induced anaphylaxis.

In the bike saddle bag are an epipen, antihistamines and steroids.

I need urgent medical assistance from a doctor or paramedic.

Hello Suffolkdi,

Your translation into Dutch sounds perfect to me, apart from the fact that the word "epipen" should stay the same and might be better spelled as "EpiPen" as it is a registered trade mark, see:

Have a good trip!

Hi, How to I translate 'The Beef Kitchen' into Dutch? Its a company name. I've found a few translations and not sure which one is correct.

De rundvleeskeuken

The Beef Kitchen  #882491
by pieterk (NL), 2017-11-20, 16:42  like dislike  Spam?  
The correct translation would be "De rundvleeskeuken". The Dutch word "keuken" is m/v, so the article is "de". And words should be written together as much as possible in Dutch, esp. when they are spoken as one word, so "rundvleeskeuken".
Administrative paperwork (ticket contestation) » answer

Good evening everybody,

I am a student from France, staying 6 months in Deventer for my studies, and on the first day I arrived I went to the convenience store (Action) to buy the basic supplies to spend the first night at least.
When I got back out, I got a parking ticket because I didn't pay, and I sincerely didn't know, I never knew you could pay for a shop's parking...

So I asked for help to a friend of mine and he wrote this for me, because I thought it would be better if the letter was in dutch rather than in english :

"Geachte mevrouw, heer,

Ik studeer op Saxion, Deventer, ik kom oorspronkelijk uit Frankrijk.

The letter basically says your reasons not to pay your parking fee are unfounded. If you don´t agree, you can appeal against the decision to the court in Overijssel. Consider well before you do so, especially if you don't speak Dutch and the fee is "only" 90 euros...

Can anyone help me with translation of a Dutch Operation manual, it is quite technical and Google translate does not make sense.

It is:

Stap 1:

Maak een doorvoer voor het snoer van de motor.
Opmerking: opgelet voor het watergedeelte als de screen onder een gesloten ligger geplaatst wordt! Hier moet je zorgen dat je altijd perfect in het profiel monteert en max 12mm diep boort. Als de screen onder een gootprofiel gemonteerd wordt, blijf je sowieso onder het technisch gedeelte.

Stap 2:
Bevestig de montageprofielen

Monteer de montageprofielen (AP2003) aan de paalprofielen en aan de ligger van het Umbris lamellendak.
1. Zorg ervoor dat de middelste lijn van het montageprofiel precies op 50mm vanaf de zijkant van het paalprofiel en ligger komt.
2. Plaats het montageprofiel...

Hi, launching a video doorbell product into Holland as a university project. And need some copy for a pretend advertisement.

'Home security system'

'30 day money back guarantee'

I tried Google translate of course. Just thought a native speaker could help me out.

Many thanks form Ireland

by need-help (UN), 2018-01-22, 23:51  like dislike  Spam?  
'30 dagen niet-goed-geld-teruggarantie' = 30 day money back guarantee

There is not a literal translation for 'home security system', but I'd use:
'beveiligingssysteem voor het huis'
'alarmsysteem voor uw woning'
Single sentence on a funky dutch tile  » answer
by Llottieda, 2017-06-25, 20:14  like dislike  Spam?  63.145.194...
Found a funky dutch tile with an image of a man sitting on a toilet with a cigarette in one hand, megaphone in the other, newspaper at his feet.

The text says "zeg't voort, zeg't voort, 'n korte tÿd is wat hier hoort"

Google translated this to mean "Say on, say a short word is what's here", which doesn't make sense to me in the context- what would that have to do with the image? If someone can crack this one for me I would be so grateful! This is a funny little mystery.

Thanks in advance!
